Modern Edits to Acts 5:41

Modern Edits to Acts 5:41

What if someone were writing more chapters to the book of Acts as they observed present day Christians?

“So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name.” – Acts‬ ‭5:41‬ ‭NASB‬‬

It seems things have changed with many of us, here might be how this verse would be written with modern edits:

So they went on their way from the presence of the council, infuriated that they were shamed and confronted, they devoted themselves to defending themselves from the their pulpits along with their rights and privileges in Christ and had that council replaced in the next election with those loyal to themselves.” – Acts 5:41 revised


It is eye opening when we compare our behavior to what we read in the New Testament.
